      This would have been my 50th reunion weekend, which would have featured a homecoming football game against Hobart.

      Last time I saw RPI play Hobart in football was during my junior year, 1968. Hobart spent just about the whole game handing the ball to a guy named Mark Perkins, who kept gaining 3, 4, or 5 yards every single time, resulting in one first down after another. Perkins ended up carrying the ball 61 times and Hobart won, 21-7.

      Perkins' 61 carries in a single game stood as an NCAA record for all divisions until 2015, when a player named Rahmann Lee carried the ball 62 times in a game for Division II Glenville (WV) State. Wikipedia apparently recognizes the Division III record as 59 carries by John Ortiz of King's (PA) in 2005, but I could tell them differently if they asked me (I'm sure Hobart's sports information director could tell them, too.)

      Edit - Now that I check the records, it appears that Hobart played RPI in Troy two consecutive seasons, both in 1968 and 1969. Though Perkins' record-setting performance came in 1968, the last time I saw Hobart play was actually in 1969, when they beat us even worse than they had in 1968.

There would be no meeting of the two Divisions until the tourney final. Thus we would play 2 home and home series with Union, Clarkson, SLU, Cornell, and Colgate. The idea was to reduce travel and eliminate overnight stays.

                    A later post said that this was not yet approved.
                    I honestly don't see how a home and home scenario makes any sense for the NY bracket... Especially considering travel will be occurring during the heart of the winter season. On the best of nights, the bus wouldn't leave the rink anytime much before 10:00 PM which, with dry roads puts you in Troy around ~1:00AM. Add in any kind of bad weather with a charter bus and you can add an hour or two + , or worse the conditions will prevent travel that night. Perhaps they would consider Friday night and then Sunday matinee games, to allow for the likelihood of travel difficulties.

                      I did read Friday and Sunday somewhere, but it could have been from someone who thought of the same thing as you.

                      There is a thread on eLynah http://elf.elynah.com/read.php?1,229771 which has been discussing this http://elf.elynah.com/read.php?1,229771 although it as wandered off topic. You can guess who posts with a Puckman as a logo. I used to use a small picture of Doug Hearns scoring against Ken Dryden in OT in December 1988, but they didn't like it. :-D

                              RPI 1 of only 2 teams with a 10 win improvement from 2017-18 to 2019-21. (Just think of the improvement from 1965-66 to 1984-85. :-D )
